Pendant Making from Wax to Metal

, jewelry maker

Have a collection of beads that haven’t yet become distinguished jewelry pieces? Why not make your very own pendant to complement them? We’ll take you through the steps of wax working and surface treatment to make cast-metal centerpieces for your jewelry projects. The first two classes will be spent working experimentally in wax, designing and creating your unique pendant. In the final class, you’ll learn the steps of refinement and patinating that will beautifully integrate your one of a kind metal pendant into your design.

The fee for this course includes all tools and materials except the cost of casting which will be on a piece-by-piece basis. This class is perfect for those who love experimentation, and are eager to take their making skills a step further. You’ll leave the class with infinite possibilities for designing future creations. Make sure to bring along any of your own beads, chains, cords, or other inspirational materials so that we can begin the fun process of incorporating them into your overall design!

Class is taught by Melissa J Tyson and Kerrie Yeung in their jewelry studio.
